CelebNSports247.com has the latest on Tennessee Volunteers running back Jeremy Banks who was arrested after a traffic stop.
Jeremy Banks had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear out of Knox County.
In the video, Banks could be heard making several perceived threats towards the officers, even one comment to a woman who was riding along with the officer.
The 20-year-old RB said to the woman intern:
Ma’am, you don’t wanna be an intern because where I’m from we shoot at cops. I’m from Memphis, Tennessee.
It gets worse, as Jeremy continued to put his foot in his mouth saying:
I should have ran, test y’all’s speed. Y’all would’ve never caught me. I don’t like the police, bro. Hell nah. Y’all police are some ps, bro. Real shit, I don’t f–k with y’all.
After making threats Banks switched up, calmed down and started singing and giving compliments to the officer on his way to the detention center.
No one saw that twist coming huh?
The running back released a statement on Tuesday, saying:
[Jeremy] want to sincerely apologize to my family, the University of Tennessee and the law enforcement community. I deeply regret my language and attitude in the video.
[Banks] have great respect for our policemen and women, and I am embarrassed by my actions that night. That’s not who I am. I promise to be a better representative for the University of Tennessee moving forward.
Head coach Jeremy Pruitt also addressed the incident:
Jeremy’s behavior and comments are unacceptable and portrayed himself and our football program very poorly and he understands that. We will address the matter internally. I’m determined to do what I can to help Jeremy grow up and become a better man. Our team and staff respect our law enforcement and we will continue to educate our players on how to carry themselves at all times.
